Eclipse Hunters Influx Expected in Russia in 2008

The majority of hotel rooms in the Russian city of Novosibirsk have been booked for the period of the sun eclipse that will take place in Western Siberia on 1 August 2008. According to representatives of hospitality business in Novosibirsk, part of the hotel rooms were booked in 2005.
      The eclipse hunters that are expected to come to the city in 2008 are mainly citizens of Canada, North America, and the EU countries. By the moment 1.5 thousand tourists in groups have submitted requests to witness the eclipse.
      Director executive of the Novosibirsk Association of Travel Organizations is puzzled with where to accommodate all the guests probably there will be a need to resort to not only hotels of Novosibirsk but of the neighbouring areas also.
      The eclipse of 2008 will last over 2 minutes. Maximum duration of the full phase of 2 minutes 27 seconds will take place in the city of Nizhnevartovsk; 2 minutes 20 seconds in Novosibirsk, and 2 minutes 14 seconds at Altai. Then the eclipse will move south to the difficult-to-access areas of Mongolia and China.
